Said Pur village is renewed form of a four or five years old village which was named at the name of Said Khan, the Gakhar Chief of Pothohar region. Daughter of Said Pur was married with Mughal emperor Jahangir and he stayed at Said Pur for a little period at Said Pur. After many years Raja Man Singh built here a temple for Hindus and a Gurdwara for Sikhs and  a Mosque for Muslims. Here I also saw an old school with red bricks,a Polo ground, a museum and many restaurants.

. Said Pur Village isn’t a real village. It is designed in such a way that it does not project only a village but also reminds us of the wonderlands of very old stories where a torch bearer is standing behind a curtain and where we hear tune of Violon played by some unvisible hands.Traditional beds are laid in courtyards. A small table midst of each two beds has a traditional lantern and some crockery. There are also some huts where people are sitting on couches in dim lights enjoying the atmosphere of Mughal emporers centuries ago and having some meal. A restaurant named”Das pardas” had enchanting look with its dim but colorful lights and silence.Music at a moderate volume every where adds the wilderness of the place. Winding passages take the passangers to unknown mysteries. A quaint well in the way is waiting for thirsty travelers.

Beside the village some stairs took us to an old temple.Now it is just a building without any idols. It has a gallery having photos of Islamabad in diffrent periods and its important visitors. It is preserved in its original shape and just repaired where needed.
